The Denver Broncos are on a six game losing streak and now it appears Head Coach Vance Joseph is making a change at QB. Second year Quarterback Paxton Lynch will take over the reins for this team and the Broncos are hoping Lynch can provide a spark for their offense. For those who aren’t familiar Denver is ranked 24th in the league in scoring with only 183 points for the season. The move to Lynch is an attempt to change the identity of the team and there’s certainly some things the young passer does well. First and foremost Paxton Lynch is 6 foot 7 inches so he has the ability to see over the offensive line and can scan the field with ease. If the pass protection starts to fall apart Lynch can also buy time with his legs and is unusually mobile for his size. The real underlining factor whether Lynch can be a full time starter is how well his arm holds up though? Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas are desperate to make some big plays in the passing game and they just haven’t been able to do with Brock Osweiler and Trevor Siemian calling the shots. The idea is that Lynch can use his youthfulness and playmaking ability to give this offense another gear and it’s worth a shot considering how bad Denver has been when it comes to putting points on the board. Vance Joseph needs to get things turned around so or he will find himself on the hot seat before he knows it. John Elway also has a lot of pressure mounting against him so everyone’s job is up for grabs at the moment. That’s part of working / playing in the National Football League and now it will be up to Lynch to go out there and keep his head coach and general manager employed.
